|I write this two glasses of wine in, a shot of tequila, and a very large shot of vodka. After class we gringos of all nations rolled into Tlaquepaque for a nice dinner and some relaxation after a full weeks worth of total immersion. Not as exhausting as last week but never the less very tiring. I am shocked by how much spanish I'm able to speak though grammatically incorrect for the most part, still comprehendible to the native speakers here. For that I'm proud. :)
Tlaquepaque is a lot like Tequila in that it's stunningly beautiful!! We had dinner and wine then walked the streets of Tlaquepaue.
There are numerous churches throughout Guadalajara and they are all breath taking. We entered one in Tlaquepaque and sat in a pew staring in awe after we were all given shots of tequila from the shop owner next door.....for whom i am apparently now engaged.
My extranjero friend was kind enough to school me on what to do and not to do in the church. Don't walk down the center isle. Don't wear hats. Don't cross your legs. Apparently it's ok to drink beer though because he had one hell of a large cup of beer in his hand. Ah hahaha.
The tequila must have set in because we left the church for the bar next door where we had a shot of vodka, and some beer. Im not quite sure how this happened but after departing the bar we went from six to four to three and then there was me. I actually watched two slowly disappear into the night as they looked for me while the bus I was on darted off toward the city center. I could have sworn they were right behind me. Guess I'll see them tomorrow ha-ha. Apparently this is how all nights end I'm told.
I Rocked out to Enrique again all the way home - this time on my iphone! LOL!! No me digas que no! No me digas que no......no me digas adios!!
